Overview
Beautiful and powerful accounting software for small businesses.

The latest in online accounting: ZipBooks takes the pain out of keeping your books, with simple bank connect, intelligent auto-categorization, and beautiful color-coded reports.

Online invoicing for the smart business owner: ZipBooks provides an effortless way to do your billing.  Send beautiful and professional invoices, track as customers view them, and take online credit card payments through Square or Stripe. Set up recurring invoices and payments with ease, and send receipts to your customers when they pay you.  You can even import tracked time into invoices and have all of the calculations done and line items created automatically.

Track time and project info anywhere: our beautiful and flexible time tracker allows you to keep your own hours and employee hours with the click of a button.  Assign time to customers, projects, internal initiatives, or nothing at all. When you're ready, automatically export time to invoices. ZipBooks will automatically track which time entries you've been paid for, and let you easily track which you've paid to employees.

Ability to charge credit cards: simply set up a leading payment processor like Stripe or Square to ZipBooks, and let customers pay you online or in person with credit cards, all synced automatically to your books so you don't have to do any extra record-keeping.

Collaborative tools: add multiple team members to ZipBooks, and set permissions so they just have access to what you want them to -- whether they do bookkeeping, time tracking, or billing for your company.  You can also give your accountant access and easily share documents.

Beautiful dashboards: ZipBooks' interface was designed for you to get all of the crucial information you need without needing to dig into reports (though of course, you can do that too with our powerful reporting functionality).  Once you start using ZipBooks, its interface will light up with intuitive, simple and insightful dashboards showing you exactly where you're at.

I am currently using ZipBooks to manage a very small engineering consulting and contracting business. This tool is excellent for basic bookkeeping to track expenses, income, send invoices and receive payments. However, it also includes the excellent feature to track time spent on different projects and different tasks within those projects, which can all be billed at different rates. The user interface is extremely simple for someone without an accounting background to pick up and use right away. The support team also is very responsive! I'm quite excited to see what features will be added soon.

Zipbooks has some areas that need work, but its team will take the time to listen and that is worth its weight in gold - and since it's free you're making all the figurative profit! When technical things arise I have always received fast response and an "over and beyond" personal approach. Zipbooks is a great program that is only growing and getting better.

Zipbooks has been absolutely amazing! I [am a developer and] have moved from a bulkier accounting app to using them because of the awesome API integration as well as lightning fast front-end and integration with my existing Stripe Account. Also, any time I have needed they provided phenomenal customer service.

As a disgruntled and soon to be ex-FreshBooks user, I'm stoked to have found ZipBooks. I've been spreading the word to fellow Small Business owners. There interface is extremely easy to use, they were able to import all my client info from FreshBooks and customer service has been prompt and thorough thus far.

Have been using ZipBooks for a couple of weeks and really like it. Easy to work with and a dedicated team behind it. Just got the update for the look&feel and a lot of improvements again. I have just been using the invoices and estimates part. Hope to start using the time tracking from next month. I had some suggestions and questions while working with the app and Brad (ZipBooks) was really quick and happy to help out. Best reason to try it? it's free :)

Pretty awesome accounting app for a freelancer or small business. Don't have anything to compare Zipbooks too and selected it over others because it looked and sounded easy to use; and it is. Does everything I need it for and it's free!

Extremely easy to use! I switched from Quickbooks and Go Daddy Bookkeeping to Zipbooks. This program is a god send. What makes this program even better is all the support you get in the bookkeeping world. Karin has been my main point of contact in my setting up Zipbooks and she has just been so helpful, kind and she knows her stuff!!. Karin is really the person who kept me onboard Zipbooks and with out Karin's assistance, I would have had such a hard time with categorization. Thankyou Zipbooks for understanding small business.

I had been using Quick-Books for my business accounting. However I had to purchase a new computer. When I tried to use my Quick-books software it kept giving an error message. I then checked only to find out that I could not use my 2009 Quick Books software that had been purchased. I was informed that Quickbooks Pro 2009 is incompatible and I would have to get an upgrade to Quickbooks 2015-2016. I found this app and I have been using it since. No problems so far.

Clearly whoever made this has never had to invoice anyone. You need more detailed seller information besides just a name. For example, the invoice only shows it is from me, just my name. I cannot add an address or any other information unless you want it in the notes below.

An extremely easy to use interface, even for those with no accounting skills! I have a very small business that requires basic book keeping so the free option is working perfectly for me. Also the online customer support is great; the response time is about 24 hrs and each time they have solved my issues so many thanks. :)
